Braiding Bread, Whole Wheat Loaf Bread

How to form a plait or braid. First divide the dough into 3 equal portions and roll into a strip. They have to be the same length as the pan you are using, can be shorter but not longer than the loaf pan. Line them up in front of you as shown below.

Number the dough strips into 1 2 and 3. 

Put strip number 1 under #2, and #1 over #3 as show above.

Pick # 3 and place it in between # 1 and # 2. We are now going to start criss crossing the strips. I actually practiced with 3 ropes and straws before i started with this one.

Next put strip on your left in between the two strips.

Next, grab the strip on the right and place it in between the two strips. 

Again, with the left strip on hand, place it between two strips until you get to the end of the braid.
Tuck both ends under and place it in a greased loaf pan or flat on a baking sheet.

Proof until it doubles in size and bake at 325 F for 30 minutes or until center temperature registers 199 F.
